Mapping urban land use in India and Mexico using remote sensing and machine learning

This technical note describes the data sources and methodology underpinning a computer system for the automated generation of land use/land cover (LULC) maps of urban areas based on medium-resolution (10–30m/pixel) satellite imagery. The system and maps deploy the LULC taxonomy of the Atlas of Urban Expansion—2016 Edition: open, nonresidential, roads, and four types of residential space.
